2014_01_13 – challenges of fish eye

I started in on tonight’s drawing and noticed that the photographer used nearly a fish-eye lens creating a sharper than normal perspective shift on the 3/4 view portrait.  It was good practice to keep repeating to myself, “draw what you see, not what you ‘know’ is there”. That is one of my biggest hurdles I’ve had when it comes to perspective and foreshortening.  I think tonight’s piece came out okay, though not as recognizable as I would have liked.  I didn’t have time to finish the hair, so it looks much shorter that it should be. At least she looks like a normal human.
